EARLY — The Early City Council will hold a public hearing related to the city’s plan to build a wastewater treatment plant when the council meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Council members approved in April the issuance of $8.36 million in Certificates of Obligation to fund the construction of the plant.
The city earlier received approval for a loan in that amount from the Texas Water Development Board to built the facility.
Construction is expected to last about a year.
Early pays Brownwood $324,000 a year to treat its wastewater, city officials said earlier.
After construction is complete, the operating cost will be $35,000 a year, and the facility will save the city $2.5 million over the life of the 30-year loan, then-City Administrator Ken Thomas said in September 2014.
In other business Tuesday, council members will:
• Consider entering an interlocal agreement with Brown County for ambulance service.
• Consider approving a special use permit to place a manufactured home at 103 West.
• Enter executive session to discuss the purchase of property.
